Men, Women and Children by Chad Kultgen

I read an excerpt of Chads new book and I Could tell that it is just creative and entertaining as his two previous books. Five stars! Can't wait to have his new book in my hands to pick up where I left off. A must read of the summer!
See* The Average American Male (hilarious!) And The Lie (cruel and hilarious!)

Daemon by Daniel Suarez

Computers and thrillers not really my thing; read. But this book is well worth the time. Awesome characters. Starts of a bit bit slow but quickly captures your attention and the readers want to know what's next. Movie is in the works but absolutely everybody should know by now that movies don't always do justice to exceptional novels and books. Just read it break out of your mindset and read something new or different!

Awesome stories that are seemingly about nothing but end with gut feeling that there is more to it. Their simple complex and imaginiative!

Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell
Island of the Blue Dolphins

Jose Juarez, January 13, 2010

I also read this book when I was in elementary school, i'm 24 years old and still remember this book. It's definitely a memorable story. Scott O'Dell tells a story about an island that becomes over run by the white man. When the surviving natives decide to scape the island one girl, Karana, is left behind alone in the island for 18 years and survives. In her story of courage and survival she fights of wild dogs and loneliness. Eventually she is rescued only to die because her inviability to adapt to the city life. The story is based actual facts and it's a children's book that adults will enjoy.
